I joined Butt Thornton & Baehr because
it has always been known for being fair,
firm, and competent. When I walk into a
courtroom anywhere in New Mexico, it is
great to have that reputation behind me.
Before joining the firm in 1998, I served
as Director of the Civil Litigation
Division in the New Mexico Attorney
General's office for eight years. I was
the lead counsel for the State of New
Mexico in the Duran prison decree case
until the decree was dismissed in 1999. I
have been a member of the New Mexico Supreme
Court Rules of Evidence and Code of
Professional Conduct Committees. I was Assistant
Dean at the University of Denver, College of
Law from 1971 to 1972. And I have been active
in my church and, in recent years, the Navy
League of the United States.
